This past week, Iran proudly hailed its domestically produced nuclear fuel rods.  That announcement combined with the attempted murders of Israeli diplomats in multiple countries and recent statements advocating the killing of all Jews has greatly intensified the standoff in the Middle East.  South Carolina Rep. Joe Wilson is a member of both the House Armed Services Committee and the House Foreign Affairs Committee.  He explains why he believes President Obama failed to lead on this issue at the most critical time and what the best policy would be for the U.S. moving forward.  He also explains why Iran’s targeting of Israeli diplomats is far worse than the alleged Israeli killing of Iranian nuclear scientists. And he explains why he bucked his own party’s leaders to vote against the extension of the payroll tax compromise.
